Industrial and mold tooling is a general process to produce high volument products for plastic and metal parts. To ensure the precision and mold life in the production, the mold parts and core components will be machined and checked, using metal additive manufacturing or cnc prototyping model.
Conformal Cooling: The conformal cooling is a water channel with complex and irregular shapes designed according to the structure of the product. Its purpose is to promote temperature uniformity and achieve rapid and uniform cooling of the mold. The conformal cooling solution unsing metal additive has bigger advantage than traditional methods, which can print the complex geometric shapes.
Injection Molding:The improvement of the cooling system of injection molding is the main research direction of this industry. The characteristic of the injection molding process is cyclic. Filling, molding, cooling and ejecting are the main steps of the injection molding process. Among them, the cooling link is a key factor that affects shortening the molding cycle and improving production efficiency. The conformal waterway of 3D manufacturing provides a new solution.
Die Casting and Fixture:Metal printing can also used i the industries of die-casting and fixture, making the high-complex components with short prodution time.
